'We're happy to see the Sense UI back again, as the circular base (with menu and phone functions) is back again, this time packing in a key to take you to the myriad of personalisation options.'
'There's no point beating about the bush, if you don't mind your phones being big, the HTC Desire HD is the best smartphone on the market right now. '
'attractive aluminium case'
'Having everything exactly as you left it makes the phone feel like a cozy and welcoming place -- unlike, say, Windows Phone 7, which tends to act like a neurotic housekeeper that'll tidy away your cup before you've finished enjoying your tea.'
'It's also the showcase handset for Apple's newest operating system, iOS 4, which adds a selection of long-overdue features, plus a selection of smaller tweaks that we weren't expecting. '
'best media playing phone'
'Overhauled iOS 4 .'
'Moreover, in our experience, unlike plastic, glass screens are essentially scratch proof in normal use so using glass on the back as well will hopefully mean the iPhone 4 will look flawless for years to come, no matter how rough you treat it. '
'It's also one of the most responsive accelerometer-equipped smartphones we've tested. '
'cool industrial design'
'We were impressed with some of the small touches, including the super-responsive, touch-sensitive back and search keys, while the physical Start button has a more reassuring click than Apple's iPhone 4, even if it is slightly smaller. '
'You’ll be able to play turn-by-turn games with other users.'
'While the phone feels a bit heavy in the hand at 165g (5.8 ounces), it doesn't feel as bulky in your pocket due to its smooth rounded edges.'
'clean, bright interface'
'Available for $199 on AT&T, we like the idea of a phone with strong media capabilities, a kickstand for watching movies and TV, and a big speaker that can fill a small room with Zune tunes. '
'The HTC Surround also has a dedicated audio chip for its two speakers, and what we were left with was one of the best sound performances we've ever experienced on a phone—calling and blasting the Beastie Boys in public. '
